I just want to share and document the process I’ve done to build up my own LAMP Dev server. I have a project that I need to move to PHP and the first thing I need to do is to build me a LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) server. There are a lot of tutorials out there that discusses the process. References I used to build my server is included at the end of the tutorial.
Vmware Workstation 6.5
Eclipse (Helios Release)
Active ISO Burner 2.1
- Download a copy of Ubuntu Server
- Install Ubuntu Server
- Update Ubuntu
- Install Apache
- Install MySQL
- Install PHP
- Install a Firewall
The first thing you will need to do is download a copy of ubuntu server at there website http://www.ubuntu.com/server.
Make sure to choose the appropriate version (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are planning to install it on an older machine with Pentium 4 processor make sure to select 32 bit.
After the download, burn the ISO image file into a CD or DVD.
I use Active@ ISO Burner 2.0 for burning ISO image file.
Make sure to change your computers boot order.
